In recent months, Nintendo’s plans to release an updated version of its handheld game console have been actively discussed online. Initially, it was assumed that the announcement of the new Switch will take place as part of E3. However, at the conference, the Japanese manufacturer spoke only about games. The announcement of the updated Nintendo Switch took place only now.
The new console features a 7-inch 720p OLED display, 64GB storage, an adjustable stand and an improved docking station with a built-in Ethernet port. Also, the manufacturer finalized the sound. Data on other technical characteristics of the console is not yet available. It is only known that the novelty will not be able to run games in 4K resolution.
Nintendo claims that the battery life of the Nintendo Switch (OLED model) is about 9 hours. The original portable console also had approximately the same performance. At the same time, the novelty has become a little heavier (0.32 kg versus 0.29 kg) and longer than the “regular” Nintendo Switch.
It is reported that the sale of the new console will appear on October 8. The price will be $350.
